I understand your point, and it's sensible and has good reasoning.

But IMHO we can also use the new avalon CVS instead of the sandbox dir 
*exactly* with the same purpose, and have the history already there and 
start from the initial commits. To make it clear we can put a WARNING 
file in the main dir and in the docs there. Using the sandbox can also 
confuse, since material in there can be or can also not be put in the 
main repo, while here we are effectively creating the new repo. Tomcat 5 
development is done in the new repo, not in a sandbox or the new one.

Just IMHO that is.
